Simple menu changes daily, offering a wide variety of local appetizers (meze), a choice of one/two soups and four main courses. All ingredients are fresh, coming from local farmers.

My husband and I were on our last day in Goreme and were walking around the village. We walked into Topdeck before they opened and spoke with the owner. He said to return after 5:00 when they opened. Not thinking about dinner at that time we left and continued our exploring. Several hours later back at our hotel we were talking with a man from Australia who asked our dinner plans when we said nothing he suggested going into town and finding a place. So we happened upon Topdeck again and when we went in (7:30pm) we were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not. But as we were being told they had no table the owner (also the chef) recognized us from earlier and went above and beyond to find us a table which he did and accommodate us with such kindness. Come to find out that this family owned restaurant is in the basement of their home. Very nice atmosphere amazing food and service. Go go go here to eat, but make a reservation, it is very small but worth it!!!

The reviews do this cave restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Goreme all the justice it deserves. From the delicious array of mezze to the chicken, lamb and beef mains, coupled with an infectiously warm service, this eatery cannot be missed. Mustafa (the owner) and his family are our Turkish delights!

We liked the lamb shank best, the small amount of wine pour least. The family is very gracious and nice and can cook!

My family of 5 ate at Topdeck last night and we had high expectations since it is rated number one. They have a very limited menu- one chicken, one lamb, one vegetarian and one beef per night. I am not a picky eater by any means but there was really nothing since the chicken was wings (not much to them). Their meze was good and the wine was good. The service was really strange because the girl who took our order couldn't tell us much about how the food was prepared-even though there are only 4 dishes! I basically ate a little meze and baklava-which was great! I do have to say that the rest of my family LOVED the lamb-prepared 2 ways. I don't eat lamb. I think Seten is much better.
